Looking to bring home a new best friend? Now may be the time as October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month.
The Atlantic County Animal Shelter is hoping to get the word out that there are many furry friends available for adoption right now and shelter dogs can make wonderful pets.
Kathy Kelsey the Manager of the Atlantic County Animal Shelter stated, "We prefer to see people adopt for many many reasons, if you don't see a breed in the animal shelter, there are also very many breeds available at your local rescue groups and also Petfinder is a great resource for adopting a breed that you really, really, are interested in adopting so it's not necessary to go to a pet store and I think that by going to a pet store you are also supporting puppy mills."
All of the dogs available will be spayed or neutered as well as micro– chipped. And the shelter even provides free obedience classes for your new pet.
